Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un Will Meet in June
A year ago, would this have seemed possible? Both the US President and the leader of North Korea will meet for their first-ever face to face summit in Singapore in June.

It’s timed just around the launch of the recent cinematic triumph, Infinity War – though sources assume the theft could have taken place as early as February this year.
